Ratings & Reviews

I had the pleasure of working with Debbie Marie. My wife and I partnered up with her to sell our townhouse. Debbie was very professional, knowledgable, thorough and innovative from our first meeting. She used several different avenues to ensure our property was seen quickly by potential buyers. Professional photography, personal website, YouTube video and smart scheduling of open houses sold our home quickly. Debbie was able to minimize the inconveniences of the selling process. Few open houses that were efficiently scheduled and E sign documents online just to name a few. I highly recommend partnering with Debbie Marie Kanehira for your Real Estate needs.

Bought a Single Family home in 2015 for approximately $650K in Tustin, CA.

Debbie is very easy to work with and very responsive with texts and emails. She made herself available to show us many different types of properties when we were unsure of what we wanted. Eventually, we found something we liked and she was very knowledgeable on the process and took the time to walk us through all of her documents. Overall great to work with and would use her again in the future.

Bought a Condo home in 2015 for approximately $575K in Aliso Viejo, CA.

Debbie helped me looking for the house that I love. She had great knowledge about all areas around Orange county and explained in details about tax rate, HOA, or any hidden tax. She was very quick to respond for my questions. She worked well with the seller and negotiated house price. When the house was in escrow, she set up the timeline to push the escrow closed on time. After escrow closed, she often communicate me and make sure everything fine with the house. I would recommend Debbie to my friends and family for future house purchase.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 in Laguna Hills, CA.

Debbie Marie is a professional, honest realtor with great interpersonal skills. She knows how to sell a home, creates a great marketing plan, and is dedicated to help you achieve your goals. She is very responsive, and is an exceptional communicator. She leveraged her extensive network (ranging from lenders to exterminators) throughout the process. I would recommend her for buyers and sellers alike.

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $550K in Brea, CA.

Debbie is an amazing realtor! I would highly recommend her (and have already recommended her to my friends) for any real estate needs. I engaged Debbie in order to purchase a rental property in the OC area. As this was my first rental property, I had a lot of questions for her. Prior to figuring out which rental property to look for, Debbie spent a lot of time explaining the differences between getting a rental property and a primary home. She also explained the areas to target which have a strong rental market. After speaking with her, I felt a lot more knowledgeable and was excited to start looking!

When showing me potential rental houses, Debbie provided me a broad spectrum of houses. This allowed me to get a very good understanding of not only the types of houses I could get, but also the locations I would be able to target with my budget. She also explained to me the difference between getting a house that would be better for the short-term (I would be able to get a high rental amount for the property) and long-term (a house where I would potentially get slightly less rental income, but the property had higher upside in terms of appreciation). It was very helpful as I was able to weigh my options and decide on what investment strategy was ideal for me.

After finding the rental property I wanted, Debbie worked very hard to close the sale. The seller wasn’t the easiest to work with as there were several things he promised to fix prior to the closing of the sale. Unfortunately, the seller failed to fix the things he promised on several occasions. Debbie worked closely with the seller’s agent to ensure everything was fixed to our standards. It took three attempts for the seller to finally get everything fixed and Debbie was unwavering in her attentiveness to get everything fixed. This was greatly appreciated! Additionally, after the appraisal report came in, the property sales price was slightly higher than the appraised value. As such, Debbie was able to successfully negotiate the selling price down to appraised value even with the troublesome seller.

When we finally closed on the property, Debbie was also very helpful as she recommended contractors to me and also gave me suggestions on how to make the property more desirable to renters. This included changing lighting, landscaping, painting and other great suggestions. Her suggestions were excellent and definitely made the house a lot more modern and desirable after I incorporated them. I will definitely work with Debbie again in the future and I would recommend her to anyone!

Bought a Single Family home in 2014 in Brea, CA.

Debbie is the cream of the crop in terms of realtors. She's very cognizant of her clients needs and tastes and is mindful of this when helping them find the perfect home. Her time, diligence, patience and dedication to her craft are second to none. As we were shopping for our first home, we were initially nervous and overwhelmed with the process. Debbie made it as exciting, fun and enjoyable process that it could have possibly been. She is a consummate professional and her passion and love for her career really shine through. She helped us find the perfect home within our budget within a very short period of time. I would recommend her to anyone shopping for or selling a home.

Bought a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $300K in Lake Forest, CA.

Debbie was very helpful during our first time home buyer process. She really made sure everything was in our best interest and did her best to assure we were getting the best deal in today's housing market. My wife and I were both very busy during this process but she was able to accommodate to our schedule and make our first time home buyer a wonderful experience. She also gave us home improvement advise.

Sold a Condo home in 2014 for approximately $225K in Westminster, CA.

Debbie helped me purchase my first home in February. She is incredibly generous with her time and very thoughtful throughout the process. Debbie took the time to educate me on the home purchasing process - from financing to assessing the condition of the home. As a first time buyer, she walked me through the process and catered to my crazy work schedule. She provided procedural guidance and recommendations but was never pushy. I would not hesitate to work with Debbie again and highly recommend her services.

Sold a Single Family home in 2014 for approximately $500K in Torrance, CA.

I cannot put into words how amazing our experience with Debbie was. She helped my husband and I buy our dream home as well as sell our first home. I was most impressed with her ability to read people and situations. She often could anticipate what the other party was looking for and gave us great advice throughout the whole process. We could also tell how connected she was. she's built up a great network; often times she knew the other party's agent and she was able to provide contacts for anything we needed. Debbie's expertise in real estate was also apparent throughout our experience. She definitely helped us navigate all the rules very easily. She was also super responsive and answered questions almost immediately - having quick answers reduced a lot of our stress. And I also loved how organized she was. Important key dates were uploaded to a calendar for us so we always knew what the next steps were. But most importantly, we could tell she genuinely cared about finding the right home for us with a price tag we were comfortable with. We highly recommend Debbie!

Sold a Single Family home in 2013 for approximately $1.0M in Tustin, CA.

We initially met Debbie when she served as the listing agent when we purchased our home in Tustin. We were so impressed with her that we hired her 2 two years later to list the home again! Debbie is detailed, passionate, and understanding. She is also a great negotiator and is able to think outside the box. She makes the whole process as smooth as possible. We received multiple offers on our home and ultimately sold it above listing price in less than a month. We would definitely use Debbie again for any real estate transactions.
